"International Appeal"

The Fripp Island Friends of Music announce their next concert for Sunday April 27th at 5pm at the Fripp Island Community Center. The concert will feature the International Streing Trio returning gor their second presentation after receiving a standing ovation at their concert two years ago.


"Classical, with a chance of Jazz"

Just like our New England weather, if you wait a minute the International String Trio will change it up. This local eclectic acoustic ensemble handles styles ranging from gipsy jazz to Appalachian folk, classical arrangements and songs from movie soundtracks. The Berklee alums have a busy program lined up for tonight, with "Por Una Cabeza" (tango from "Scent of a Woman"), Ashokan Farewell (from Ken Burns's "The Civil War"), "The There Eyes", and more. - The Boston Globe, 11.11.2009

"String Groups Review"

The Boston-based International String Trio mixes up "Georgia on My Mind" and Handel.

Words are virtually colliding in the repertoire of some string based groups. Take the recent concert playlist of the Boston-based International String Trio. It starts with "The Swan" by C. Saint-Saens and moves on to Handel, "When the Saints Go Marchin In", and "Georgia on My Mind."
"WE're trying to push the boundaries a bit" said trio member Slava Tolstoy, a 2002 Berklee graduate and the founder of the group. - The Boston Globe; 5.8.08

Their 2008 CD release, Appalachia, showcases the IST’s command of these many musical styles, presented through a satisfying journey of refined and articulate arrangements, exclusive to this rare instrumentation. Such collective proficiency, both instrumental and conceptual, is seldom seen or heard in today’s ever growing market of gimmicks and one dimensional music making.



The International String Trio (IST) is a group of exceptionally talented musicians, all alumni of Berklee College of Music, Boston. The group prides itself on its stylistic diversity, delivering Gypsy jazz, Appalachian folk, acoustic world music (Irish, Klezmer, Russian, Italian, French, Americana, Bluegrass, etc.), virtuosic classical arrangements and popular songs from movie sound tracks. The IST enjoys using the diverse cultural backgrounds of its members, hailing from Russia, Japan and England, to influence its stylistic diversity and unique performance aesthetic. Performing up to 120 events a year, including festivals, concert halls, clubs, universities, schools and private homes, the IST is experienced at performing at a multitude of venues, thanks to its small size. Their shows are enormously entertaining, as the Trio strives to provide energetic yet intimate performances. Through these means, their music is instantly appealing to a wide range of audiences, both large and small, young and old.
